Since April 1, 2002, East Capitol High School has served hundreds of students who have little or no hope of being successful in their public high schools. With the support of many, we have assisted a majority of those students in graduating from high school or being prepared to transition back to their public high school. In the mean time, these students have gained insight into themselves as students, as responsible members of their families, as well as their communities.
The East Capitol High School Foundation was created in 2009 in response to the overall success of ECHS' experiential summer program over the last couple of years. Here are just a few examples of what the East Capitol High School Foundation is responsible for:
- Attendance bonuses related to the vocational programming at ECHS - Behavior bonuses related to the therapeutic programming at ECHS - Education scholarship of $1000 awarded to deserving student(s) annually - Funding of the Summer Experiential Learning Component available to every ECHS student
Financial Contributions to the East Capitol High School Foundation go directly towards enhancement programs established by the Foundation Board as well as the East Capitol High School Advisory Board. Absolutely 100% of donations go towards the programs designed to help our students meet their goals and prepare to become responsible, productive members of our community.
As you can see, our goals are many and our standards are high. We would appreciate your continued support of East Capitol High School and our students. In order to succeed, we must all pitch-in. Your contributions are important!
